Dreams

What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
Like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?

Hi Pia, no i haven't heard of john paul jackson. Why have you been interested with dreams because of him?

Kitty Cheng said...

Hi coach,
I'm glad that you feel that you belong.
